Unfortunately the study found that male authors still got a lot more coverage in 2012. The New York Review of Books (89 reviews of female authors in 2012 to 316 of male authors), the London Review of Books (74 female authors to 203 male) and the Times Literary Supplement (314 female authors to 924 male authors) had some of the highest male-to-female ratios.

His response: "Sorry, the wifi on our yacht is having issues, we can't get your full question to load. Try sending me an email at gofuckyourself@youcunt.com." Sassy! [via Pitchfork]
